Will a Tooth Filling Halt Decay?
When a tooth is damaged due to trauma, decay, disease, or genetics, a substance, usually amalgam, composite, or gold, is packed inside in order to restore functionality of the tooth. It’s a relatively simple procedure that can restore usefulness and prohibit further deterioration of the tooth. The dentists in our office in Westfield are experts at installing tooth fillings. Call us for more information.
Will Dental Crowns and Tooth Bridges Fix the Appearance of Teeth?
Dental crowns, also called dental caps, can be used when a tooth is too damaged to accept a filling. The crown covers the entire surface of the tooth from the top to the gum line and inhibits further deterioration of the tooth. A tooth bridge replaces a missing tooth. It’s anchored either to adjacent teeth or to a dental implant. If you need a bridge, call our office in Westfield to schedule an appointment.
Will My Dentist Do Fillings, Crowns, and Bridges?
All of the general dentists in our office in Westfield can install dental fillings, dental crowns, and tooth bridges. Many of our dentists are trained in various specialties, such as pediatric dentistry, and all keep abreast of the latest trends in dental techniques. If you need more information, please call our office in Westfield.
How Much Does a Filling, Bridge, or Tooth Crown Cost?
Each patient has requested the filling, dental bridge or dental crown for a different reason, as such, each cost estimate will be different. The tooth filling cost, the dental bridge cost and the dental crown cost will all vary depending on the amount of pre-work needed, the type of materials selected, and the severity of the situation. We’ll be happy to provide you with a more accurate quote based on your individual needs. Call us today.
Types of Tooth Fillings
Four different types of tooth fillings can be used but amalgam is the most popular. For special situations, like for front teeth, other fillings can be used but your dentist will advise you which is the best option for your unique needs. Call our office in Westfield if you need additional information.
Types of Crowns
Four types of crowns for teeth are common and your dentist will explain the difference and which crown will be best suited for your needs. Not all crowns are appropriate for all teeth. Call our office in Westfield today and set up a consultation.
Types of Dental Bridges
There are four different types of bridges: traditional, cantilever, Maryland, and implant-supported. Your dentist will recommend the bridge that’s most appropriate for your unique needs. Call us today in Westfield to schedule a consultation for your bridge work.
Dental Crown Procedure: What to Know
The process for a dental crown installation will involve two office visits. On the first visit, we’ll get your tooth prepared for the permanent crown installation, take impressions and measurements of your tooth, and install a temporary crown. On your second visit, we’ll remove the temporary and then install your permanent crown. Your vibrant smile will be restored and you’ll be on your way. We will, of course, make sure that your crown is seated properly and adjusted so that it fits comfortably.
Dental Bridge Procedure: What to Know
The process for installing a dental bridge is the same as it is for installation of a dental crown, we’re just installing a different dental appliance. You’ll need to allow at least two office visits, and we’ll ensure that your bridge fits well and is comfortable before you leave our office.
